    Supposedly the 2nd largest fish ever caught out of the Mississippi R. Not sure if it's all fish, or just 2nd largest gar. but it's a monster.

    hmmm..im sensing "hoax"..
    that should be a heavy fish!
    why is it leaning sideways?
    gravity should be making it straight up and down..

    WOW!! HUGE!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I think I knwo what it may be.
    In the prehistoric times, there was a fish known as the river Mossa lizard(it still had short blunt legs) they were huge like that and the head and jaws look EZACTLY the same.
    The river Mossa lizard evolved inot a fish comptley, I belive that is what it evolved into.

    The garfish, Also known as the trash fish. Not very good meat and BIG teeth. It does look pretty Cheesy, I'm not gonna assume anything though.

    hoax...

    Scott is right, it should be directly up and down... Also, a WIRE would completely cut through the gills of that fish, if its as big as is told [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    a) would only hang straight down if the sting was connected to the center line of the fish, and the fish was of uniform weight distribution. Neither is the case, so the "hang" of the fish in most likely true

    b) fish may not be quite as large as it looks due to perspective. If you look, the fish is 1) not touching the ground and 2) a little in front of the person.

    c) who know's how tall that guy is anyway?

    d) Gar's are HUGE fish by all rights. There is no reason to think hoax in this case. Just odd photo perspective.
